You can gift a donation to a dear friend or relative on special occasions, instead of giving them flowers or other gifts. When you 'gift a donation' to a friend/ relative, you continue to get the receipt and tax deduction, but a message is sent to your friend/ relative, indicating that you have gifted a donation on his/her behalf. Both you and your friend are sent the feedback report on how the donation made a difference.
Here is a step-by-step instruction on how you can gift a donation:
Step 1: If you are already registered on GiveIndia, log into the site with your email ID and password. (click on 'Forgot Your Password?' incase you do not remember your password, and a new one will be emailed to you, which you can use to log into the site). If you are new to GiveIndia, register with us.
Step 2: Select a donation option that you would like to support. Tick the 'Gift this Donation' box, then click on 'Donate'.
Step 3: You will be asked to fill in the recipient of the gift's name and email ID (If you would like to send it to multiple Email IDs, then enter all Email IDs separated by commas); along with a message that you would like to send him/her.
Step 4: Once done, you will be taken to your Donation Cart page, where you can pay for your gift.
